I hear Christians say that God never puts more on you than you can handle.
From time to time, I believe this too.
When I hear them say this, I know it is because they are pushing to get through a hard time. They are saying that if bad things are happening, it must be something that they have the strength to endure.
I have begun to say it too, because I know that anything that is in my path is mine to conquer. This path that I am on, this divine path is filled with gifts that were given to me by the Creator of heaven and earth, and I should be nothing but thankful for all that I have received.
There are people, who will never know what I know, who will never be lucky enough to experience this. There are those who only know turmoil, who know happiness, love, and joy in small doses, which sabotage any opportunity to experience the wealth of goodness that the universe has to offer.
Because I bore my strife, because I learned from my mistakes and grew from my pain, because I left behind remorse and regret and anxiety and fear, today I can handle whatever has been thrown before me.
The joy in my life is given to me because I can handle it. The blessings in my life are given to me because I can handle them. Happiness is mine to conquer. Peacefulness. Resolve. Discipline. Love.
These things that I’ve been going through lately have given me because I have what it takes to handle them. Such goodness is not misplaced.
I am worthy.
